Jack is an accomplished artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota (Born July 26th, 1989) who recently moved to Los Angeles after living and working in New York City for a decade. Jack graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a BFA majoring in graphic design. When Jack was developing his style as a child drawing and creating was like breathing. Almost involuntary. Innately Jacks curiosity drove him and his diligence to make new things daily. Currently Jack delves into defining spontaneity, his art reflects something that resides deep within. A flow state that emerges from the process of production and generation. Art as spirituality or meaningful introspection. Searching for meaning in the conceptual speculation of what it means to leave your mark. Jack almost exclusively works in large scale paintings on canvas. Maneuvering between an eclectic range of styles and subjects he challenges the conventional and explores the boundaries between fine art and subculture/street culture. Jack breaks down the human form creating work that he feels creates a mirror that transcends the filter we perceive as ourselves. He explores the tools and materials in which compose his voice. Evolving the techniques he’s learned from drawing, painting, and creating his entire life by dissecting and dissolving them through abstraction. He deploys refined and sophisticated judgements through form, color, composition, balance, tension and aesthetic which he attributes to his education in design while living in new York city. He is engrossed by and studies the human condition. Translating and transforming it using strokes of the brush.
